Article about ES alumna, Jessica Lee!

Hi everyone,

Check out this article about Jess Lee (ES major, class of 2013). She was a research assistant with me in Iceland last summer, following the completion of her ES 460 project. Jess is currently working in Denmark at DIS, and they recently wrote this article about her. We recently published a paper together, too.
